Save our Stages Call To Action Day
Wednesday, August 05, 2020, 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM EDT
Category: Networking

This Wednesday, August 5, 2020, join Ohio Citizens for the Arts and the NIVA - National Independent Venue Association to boost support of the Save Our Stages Act.

The Save Our Stages Act is a critical piece of federal legislation that would provide $10 billion for six months of financial support to keep live performing venues afloat and preserve an economic sector shuttered since mid-March.

Please engage with as many of the following action items as possible! Your voice matters and will go a long way in helping our federal elected officials understand that we depend on them to help save Ohio's arts.


Email Senator Sherrod Brown and Senator Rob Portman and ask them to support the Save Our Stages Act. You can easily send a digital letter by visiting SaveOurStages.com. Use the pre-written text and add a personal message to let them know why it's essential to save Ohio's stages!


Please push these actions via your social media accounts, preferably between noon to 5 pm. Tag #SaveOurStages and #SaveOhioStages anywhere that you can, and follow those hashtags and share/RT messages from Ohio venues. Download and use our pre-made graphics (https://bit.ly/2Dz6hQx) or create your own and include personal words and stories. Encourage your network to take action!


Contact every local artist and influencer you know and ask them to help promote this campaign. NIVA sent a letter to Congress signed by Coldplay, Lady Gaga, and Whoopi Goldberg. But, it's our local-borne talent that is affected the most. Let Senators Brown and Portman know that if they support Ohio's live performing venues, we will support them.
